Stainless steel does rust in salt water. Stainless steel is resistant to rust and corrosion, yet it can still rust and corrode under the right conditions.

When cared for properly, however, stainless steel can last for generations. Immediately when rust emerges, it must be scraped off, the surface cleaned properly, and a rust-resistant coating applied.
Cleaning stainless steel is as simple as spraying it with a vinegar-mineral oil mixture and wiping it down with a soft cloth to get rid of surface dirt and smudges.
Baking soda or any nonabrasive scrub cleanser can sprinkle stubborn dirt, grime, and stains on a wet cleaning soft cloth. Applying light pressure in the direction of the stainless steel's grain, scrub the affected area until it is spotless. Then, spray the area with vinegar and water solution or glass cleaner and wipe it down again.
If stubborn stains, try using a synthetic wash sponge and a light abrasive cleaner to scrub in the direction of the stainless steel's grain. Then, spritz the glass with vinegar and water or another glass cleaner and wipe it down one more.
